system order from Jiuquan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. China

Scanacon Asia Ltd. and Scanacon (Shanghai) Environmental Technologies Co., Ltd. are happy to inform that we recently received a system order from Jiuquan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. (JISCO) located in Jiayuguan, Gansu Province, PR of China.


The customer is a large state-owned steel company and a world top-20 producer of stainless steel flat products. This order is for their existing 600,000 ton/year HAPL where we supplied an Acid Management System when the line was built in 2004. We also received an order for their new CAPL 2 last year and we supplied a system for their CAPL 1 in 2004.


Scanacon will deliver a filter system consisting of two ASRA modules to assist the existing CycloSAFU systems and also to help keeping line- and circulation tanks free from sludge. The delivery will take place around September 2012 with commissioning soon after.


JISCO’s main reasons for buying our system are improved conditions for the existing Scanacon Acid Management System but even more so increased line capacity due to fewer production stops when sludge can be removed continuously. The order is important since it is the first stand-alone ASRA system in Asia, a market we consider to be substantial.
